April 4,5,6 East Mojave Ride

Well, I'm firming up my schedule and commitment to the DSRider.com guys to lead a ride in my old stomping grounds. I'll be setting up camp (primitive camp, water hauled in) on Turquoise Mountain 12 miles n/e of Baker Ca on 4-4-08 in the afternoon. from Barstow, take I15 north towards Vegas. The next offramp (12miles) after Baker is Holloran Springs, turn left and procede towards the huge concrete building at the top of the mountain. If you're arriving at night, you'll see a large flashing red light, just stay on the main road.

Those who don't like roughing it can stay in Baker. There's food/gas/motels and I can probably get discounts if I know ahead of time.

The camp will be on the boarder of the Mojave Preserve so riding Green Sticker will be legal out of camp and to the north and west. I'll be leading at least one ride through the preserve (plated bikes only). HOWEVER... I've ridden every part of this area on an old XR350 w/out even a green sticker so to each his own . It is a very sechluded area.

Give some feedback- questions- suggestions.
Cheers
Tom (HST)

Ben99r1 There will be 50s & 80s & quads and other great kids (preteens & new riders) riding non plated dirt machines. HST can give square mile and more details

Ben99r1-
Since we'll be on the north boundary of the preserve, there'll be allot of wide open dirt-only riding with not allot of traffic. I've ridden from there to 30 miles north and hit Dumont Dunes. You can ride the Powerlines from the highway127 x-ing (12mi. north of Baker) to Barstow 60 miles away with lots of side routes.

I'll probably bring two of my teenagers but won't let them ride w/out my supervision.

Tom

To be more specific- the 'green sticker" area would be a couple hundred square miles.

LMS-
My ex-wife #1 might make this ride. She's in So. Cal. and rides an XR and I'm trying to talk her into bringing my son up (he also has an XR).
I'll keep you posted.
Any other "Femoto's" out there?
